Saw this amazing place on a cruise ship. Absolutely stunning scenery and wildlife, which photos do no justice to. This is a lifetime must see.

We went on this cruise as part of the Royal Princess cruise. It was spectacular what with seeing all the various glaciers and exquisite scenery. Well worth taking this excursion.

The day after touring Glacier Bay National Park, and being in a near constant state of awe, the ship ventured into College Fjord. I think it is fair to say that most on the ship had little expectation that anything could top the majesty of...More
